    Grimm: The Big Foot's Out of the Bag

    "Big Feet" was a Monroe-driven episode that deepened the show's mythology and furthered its character development. It also featured a woman shrieking, “Big Foot killed them!” so all my benchmarks for great TV were hit.

  • Episode Summary

      Big Feet was a great episode of Grimm and I enjoyed watching because the story was good, the character development was fun, and the ending was awesome. This was a good take on Big Foot for the series and I was entertained watching the story unfold. Every thing was pretty typical and what you'd expect from this show and though some scenes and parts of the story could have been better, the production was an over all success. I loved the ending how Juliette was confiding her new beliefs to Nick. I look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!moreless
    • Grimm S1E21 "Big Feet"

      As a whole, I liked how this episode was much more suspenseful and exciting than previous in the series. I enjoyed how the episode started out with a found footage style and how everyone around Nick is suddenly being pulled into this world of fairy tales. I knew that Nick wouldn't be able to hide these secrets forever. I liked how Juliette was a more central character because I've felt that she has needed more character building, she's always seemed like a minor character when I've felt that she's needed to play a more prominent role in the series. Like any other episode of the show, some parts were very predictable, but there were also a few twists I didn't see coming this time around. The effects seemed cheesier than they have in previous episodes, especially Dr. Brinkerhof's transformation. SPOILER: I also didn't like how Nick denied how Brinkerhof's face changed after he died. He could have acknowledged the change without acting like he knew anything about why it happened, rather than making Hank look crazy. I feel like that will be a major plot point on the season finale.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Hank: These wounds look like they were made by an animal. Maybe a wolf.
        Nick: I don't know. If these footprints were what Thom and Juliette followed from the horse attack, I'm thinking whatever did this was human.
        Wu: The answer's obvious. The murders were committed by a barefoot man carrying a wolf.

      • Eddie: Larry, you fought the good fight. And for guys like us, it's a battle we fight every day of our lives. I don't know what went wrong for you, man, but we are going to find out. Rest in peace, brother.

      • Nick: That sounded really beautiful. What does it mean?
        Eddie: "Everything has an end. Only the sausage has two." My father used to say it when anyone died.

      • Brinkerhoff: I would love to talk to you about your identity issues sometime.
        Nick: Thanks, I'm good.
        Brinkerhoff: Are you? You can only walk in darkness so long. Sooner or later the inner man emerges for all to see. It's never a question of if, only when.

      • Rinaldo: Anyway, the way I feel, miracle cure might be worse than the disease.
        Eddie: That reminds me of Larry's old joke, remember? "What's the best way to help a friend quit drinking?"
        Rinaldo/Eddie: Tear his arms off!
